Downtown Boca Unveils Directional Pavement Signage, Highlighting Area Attractions for Visitors

Boca Raton, FL – Downtown Boca has installed a series of directional pavement signs designed to highlight downtown attractions and help guide visitors around, while also providing pedestrians a little bit of art in an unexpected place – at ground level.

The pavement signs, which look like decals on the sidewalks, were designed to assist the growing number of visitors to the downtown district. Each sign highlights two downtown attractions, and guides visitors to them with directional arrows and the estimated number of feet to reach each destination. For example, a visitor standing on E. Boca Raton Road in front of Sanborn Square will learn they can turn right and reach Mizner Park in 532 feet, or turn left and reach Royal Palm Place in 1,267 feet.

Additionally, the signage provides colorful visual interest on the ground to all locals and visitors, while further branding Downtown Boca. A total of 24 signs are located throughout the downtown district and feature such attractions as Mizner Park, Sanborn Square, Royal Palm Place, the Cultural Center, Museums, Visitor’s Center, Parks, the Amphitheater, Recreation and more.

“The pavement signs promote Downtown Boca’s top attractions and show our visitors the ability to easily walk to each one – as we are a very walkable downtown. We hope they are helpful, visually appealing and enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.” says Downtown Manager, Ruby Childers.
The pavement signs are the first phase in a broader directional system for Downtown Boca. In-ground wayfinding signs are scheduled to be installed later this year.
